The Hang:

Formerly called Trey Green, The Hang has recently recorded two full albums, made over a dozen videos, and will be releasing all of it in 2012.

Johnny Ford: Who is Johnny Ford? He is the all-American soul singer---with a twist. He is the fusion of masculinity and sensitivity. He is edgy, rugged and raw. If it seems that the previous sentences were contradictions, it is because Johnny is the type of artist we have never seen. Yet, he is the musician we've all been waiting for.

    JOSH FLAGG AND THE OBLIGATIONS

    No life spent in rock & roll comes without its share of close calls and run-ins with the law, and Josh Flagg's is no different. A lifetime musician - he started playing mandolin under his father's tutelage before he was out of grade school and was playing all-ages shows in Philadelphia ahead of Orange 9mm at the ripe old age of 13 - Flagg encountered no shortage of unsavory characters. "I remember I had been playing with this other band and we did a show in Virginia," he recalls. "We were all sitting at the bar drinking, and I get a call from our lead singer. She was trapped in the van outside and some guy with a swastika carved into his forehead had chased her out of the bar and was banging on the van trying to get her." The situation doesn't improve on his home turf: a recent get-together of old high school friends quickly turned precarious. "There was a guy at the bar who, for some reason, decided he wanted to fight me," he laughs. "I don't even know why – he didn't like the cut of my jib, I guess. I didn't even find out until the next day. One of my friends called me and said, 'Seriously, man, that guy wanted to kill you.' Meanwhile, I'd been putting my arm around him, laughing right in his ear…" This kind of physicality goes hand-in-hand with a very particular kind of music, but what’s surprising is that Flagg's music isn't some rough & tumble contrivance of snarling boozer attitude topped with strung-out narratives of rock debauchery. It's the exact opposite: taut, perfectly-constructed glistening power pop that summons a more muscular Cheap Trick, Big Star on a bender or the Foo Fighters with frontloaded melodies. Flagg's got a rough, ragged voice, and it scrapes against the songs' jagged guitars and deftly counteracts the bright, soaring harmonies.
